A stuffed goose

A big thank you to Alex for surprising me with an early Christmas present last night — the little goose I had loved from my gift guides! I had been talking about it non-stop, and since it was “so cute, it hurt,” Alex brought it home yesterday. Welcome to the family, little goose! We love your striped feet!
P.S. His new home on the bookcase.

    I’m happy I made you happy. Spielberg! are you kidding?? Who are you asking -children? the elderly? Your friends have strange ideas.

    Robert Shaw hmmm are you going to grow the moustache? Now if you looked like Don Draper you could dine out every night!!

    I have only been compared to Julia Roberts, I’m happy with that, although it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like…

    Katie (yes it’s still snowing in England)

    oh and MERRY CHRISTMAS to you both!

  14. oooh what a sweet boy you have!

  15. so cute! hooray for holiday gifts! :)

  18. You and the goose are already twins! I hope your sister approves. ;-)

    You and Alex seem so lovely, happy, and head-over-heels in love. Happy Holidays to you both!

  19. I know i’m one of your billion followers, but I think you are just lovely. so sweet.

    jo gives me such joy!


  20. cute duck! love your gap top (I have the same one).

  21. you’re so adorable with your matching stripes!

    aren’t early christmas presents the best?

  22. Your new goose is very happy you’re not having a turgooken for dinner tomorrow. If there were such an entree, of course ;)

  23. oh, so glad he has a good home! i’ve been thinking about him since you posted… he’s just adorable. i might adopt his twin to come live here in seattle. pam

  24. That’s so adorable! The new home is adorable too.

    LOL, i think seth rogan is cute!

  26. What a wonderful (and appropriate gift). We do an anonymous 12 days of Christmas every year and last night was 6 geese a-laying. We left candy filled eggs but your goose would have been much cuter!

  27. Alex says...

    PS–Funny about the “Jaws-era Richard Dreyfuss” comment. I can live with that. Oddly enough, my looks have also been compared to Jaws director Steven Spielberg not once but twice in recent months. Now if only someone would compare me to Robert Shaw (Jaws-era Robert Shaw is fine, although I’d prefer “From Russia With Love” era, see link).

    That’s one I could actually dine out on:)


  28. I look nothing like Seth Rogan, I pray says...

    “Anyone who says Alex looks like Seth Rogen is completely blind.”

    Cheers to you, Katie. You just made my holiday season–Alex

  29. Soooo cute! He looks like a little cartoon.

  30. oh man, his feet are Precious!

  31. Pretty darned adorable – you, Alex & the goose!!

  32. oh so sweet. and just goes to prove that you’re never too old for another little stuffer x

  33. Ahhhhhhh! Toooooo cute! You, the wittle goose + your hubby for bringing him home! This just made my morning. :)

  34. I just had to say, you (and your goose) are completely adorable.

    I was given the duck brother of this goose at my baby shower last week! He also has stripy legs (long and dangly) and sits on my book shelf too…until the baby comes x

  36. Oh gosh, you two are so cute that it HURTS!!

  37. oh gosh you two are just incredibly adorable! how sweet. love the duck.

    Anyone who says Alex looks like Seth Rogen is completely blind, personally having seen all your wedding pics ( amazing they were too!) I think Alex is very handsome, what a cute face! I agree with the Jaws comment, and me and my mum think you have a very pretty smile, you’re pure hollywood with those red lips.

    Katie-England (and enjoying the snow!)

    Ps. PLease pray for me that I can also find a thoughtful, handsome , intelligent man to marry one day! Maybe I should move to the USA? x
